Tackling terrorists

THE ICE representation in Washington has joined with the American Society of Civil Engineers to study how buildings can be made more resilient to terrorist attacks.

A series of meetings on the planning, designing, constructing, and operating of sensitive buildings which could be susceptible to terrorist attack, will take place on 12-13 November at the ASCE conference centre in Washington, DC.

The workshop will feature the leading practitioners in this specialisation, which has become more important in the US since the World Trade Center and Oklahoma City bombings.
